We are the monitor of National Highways and its management of the strategic road network – the motorways and main 'A' roads in England.

We are here to ensure that National Highways manages the network appropriately to deliver satisfactory performance, including efficiency, safety and sustainability, for the benefit of road users and the public.

We advise the government on National Highways' future performance objectives.
